Seattle Animal Shelter Conducting Emphasis Patrols on Saltwater Beaches
It’s spring in Seattle, which means blossoming and hatching all around us. This is a particularly important time to ensure that immature wildlife have their best opportunity to flourish in the Northwest. To help protect the young wildlife, the Seattle Animal Shelter will be conducting emphasis patrols on all saltwater beaches in the city.
Dogs are not allowed on any of Seattle’s public saltwater beaches, even if they are leashed. This law helps us protect the fragile ecosystem along our shorelines. Marine mammals, such as seal pups that are typically born in April, use the city’s beaches to rest and warm themselves. Shore birds also frequent our beaches. Wildlife that interact with dogs are less likely to reach adulthood.
Uniformed animal service officers will be patrolling city parks with a focus on saltwater beaches and may issue citations to violators. If you would like to report Seattle beaches where dogs are frequently seen, submit a service request at http://bit.ly/sas-service-request. You can also contact the Seattle Animal Shelter by calling 206-386-PETS (7387).

This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.
Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Since receiving their first grant mid 2010, they have funded over 2400 spay/neuter surgeries. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. While MEOW has often provided monetary support for community members needing financial assistance or those managing feral cat colonies, these additional grant funds help them do more.
